Puppet and Printing Set

Ann was in the antique/secondhand shop again at the w/e and she got me this little 1955 pelham puppet and printing [stamp ]set.I just have to clean the puppet up a bit and replace 2 of the strings.Some of the paint's gone off her face so I'll match it up and repaint her.There are some nice designs in the stamp set I can use on cards.Amazing what you can get when you search around and they were really good prices.

What treasures! I'm especially interested in the marionette, of course! Would you, please, show it after the repairing? Is it Irish?

How lucky are you...I love finding treasures like this. The puppet is wonderful and I will be waiting to see what you create with all those amazing stamps:)

What great finds - I never have this good of luck when I go thrifting! I am in love with that little printer set.

What great luck even in original boxes. I was tempted by an electric mixer yesterday partly because it was in its original box.
Hope you get lots of use out of the stamp set and well the puppet is just gorgeous.

We don't have a St. Patrick's day, today we are celebrating Italy's 150 years birthday. :)
